live coverage. now mitt romney in an effort to secure delegates and wins in those two states. can we expect? guest: you can expect a pretty close finale here if you look at the polls. in alabama they had gingrich up with 21 points, romney with 20 and santorum at 17 on friday. actually we have seen polls in alabama over the past week in which all three of those candidates have had the lead at one point or another. romney looks like he is in a little better shape in mississippi. he had a seven-point lead in the last poll there. i am going to be interested in the impact of kansas because it is so class. the fact that santorum sort of ran away with it in the kansas caucuses. possibly if you are looking for any kind of a late-breaking thing, it could give him a little bit of a boost in those states. if there were any surprise this tuesday to look forward to, i think it might be another kind of santorum break-out like he had in tennessee or kansas. host: let's look at the results in kansas with rick santorum winning with about 15,000 votes in the caucuses over the weekend, 51%, to 21% for
